Just to clarify---I was not suggestion clipping the spring to adjust
the spring strength. Agreed there are plenty of spring strengths
The clipping would be to eliminate "spring stack" when using the shock buff.
Because of the added thickness of the buff, the recoil spring goes solid--
all coils tight against each other---before the slide can come far enough
to the rear to allow the slide stop to engage/disengage. Clipping a coil
allows the slide to come the thickness of the spring wire further back.
Pretty sure we all agree---toss the plastic, run a un-modified recoil
spring of the correct strength, and shoot.
